SO MANY THINGS HAPPENED THIS WEEK

  • My PR to add color preview got merged in DEV

    Fix #4106: Showing color preview in Edit Profile #4212

    What type of PR is this? (check all applicable)

    • [ ] Refactor
    • [x] Feature
    • [ ] Bug Fix
    • [ ] Documentation Update

    Description

    This is Fix For #4106. The current color-picker does not show a preview so it is hard to guess the color contrast. I added a preview (screenshot added below) which shows your selected colors.

    Also, Added a <input type="color"> which makes it is easy to select the color.

    Since there are other pages that depend on 'color-picker' class I did not change anything in colorPicker.js or any of the styles of current color-picker. I created a new file colorPreview.js and some new classes in html.

    Mobile & Desktop Screenshots/Recordings (if there are UI changes)

    Mobile

    Mobile screenshot of color preview feature

    Desktop

    Desktop Screenshot of color preview feature

    Recording

    Recording of color preview feature

    Added to documentation?

    • [ ] docs.dev.to
    • [ ] readme
    • [x] no documentation needed

    [optional] What gif best describes this PR or how it makes you feel?

    My first PR To DEV! I was not very sure if I could do this or not since DEV's codebase is probably the largest codebase I've ever worked on but now I'm super proud of myself to complete this 🌻

    Me showing this code to everyone : Elsa showing magic to Anna

  • My PR to add WebApp configs merged in REACT so you can now Add to Homescreen react's documentation!

    WebApp manifest added to allow users "Add to Homescreen" documentations #2377

    This solves issue #2259

    Then

    Currently there is not manifest set for the website so logo is blank and title is set as a name. Also the color of URL bar in chrome is plain white. Here's how it will look after this PR.

    Now

    Image 1 is to show the new color of URL bar in chrome Image 2 is the screen after selecting "Add to homescreen" Image 3 is the splash screen after opening it as WebApp

    I've added color to the URL bar, Configured name, short_name and other properties. and added a logo file in src/images/react_logo.png (Needed 512px png logo so had to add a new logo)

    This is my first contribution here so I'm sorry if I missed out on something


  • All of my PRs (I made 5 :D) got Approved by the reviewers and 3 are merged!


  • I had an interview the day before yesterday and it went really well and I got a fair chance to prove my skills and the interview was very meaningful and probably the best interview of my life so I am very satisfied


  • Also, I slept for 10 hours today so yes it was a great week 🌻

  • Submitted and got my first PR for Hacktoberfest merged.

  • For my Where in the World project I figured out how to get history working properly with React Router. I also fixed an issue I had with lazy loading and did some refactoring of the code.

  • Got a new pair of glasses so I can see everything clearly again. πŸ€“

I rebuilt the bathroom floor and replaced the toilet in the house we recently bought. Found out the toilet had been leaking, probably for several months. There are a few pictures in the tweet:

My win this week ... well, there were a couple ... but the one that's exciting me most at the moment, and which I will write about soon is figuring out how to load an entire dotnet assembly tree into ClearScript without having to include it in the solution.

So now I can create a folder somewhere, run

nuget install %1 -Framework net46 -Dependency Highest

where %1 resolves to, say, WordPressPCL, and watch all the related packages install. Once that's done I can create a WP.assemblylist file and put the aforementioned folder path in it on line 1 followed by the topmost DLL name on the second line, e.g.

C:\Packages\WordPressPcl
WordPressPCL.dll

When I run my ClearScript-enabled CLI, it loads WordPressPCL.DLL and all its dependencies into the JavaScript engine and lets me do stuff like

var client = new WP.WordPressPCL.WordPressClient("http://demo.wp-api.org/wp-json/");

I can see all kinds of possibilities for this to extend the reach of the CLI exe without amping up the size of the core EXE.

Worked through a statement of work to start a new consulting project. I’ll be helping a client in the education sector update the architecture of their web apps to some newer technology, and showing them the basics of DevOps. Really nice client (I’ve worked on an iPad app for them before). I’m grateful for the opportunity.
